Channel 4 Xmas specials
Channel 4 looks set to cause a bit of religious offence with its Xmas day programming this year. First we have The Magic of Jesus, in which magicians Barry and Stuart of the Friday night show Dirty Tricks recreate biblical “miracles” such as turning water into wine and feeding 5,000.
This is followed by a documentary called Tsunami: Where was God?, which features former monk Mark Dowd travelling round Asia asking followers of the three main religions, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism, how they view the tragedy through the lens of their god-belief.
Finally, Channel 4’s alternative yuletide address will be delivered by Jamie “it don’t get much holier than that” Oliver.
All in all, quite a lot for the professional offendees to get themselves worked up into a self-righteous lather about. Should be fun.
